Prairie Pal: It's only a matter of time before Sony decides to enter the printer game and shake things up the way they did with DSLR dinosaur companies. Then we might have Reasonable print costs.

Really? Sony has never made printers? Maybe you should pay old Uncle Google a visit. :)

On Panasonic confirms Lumix G 25mm F1.7 article (142 comments in total)

Some combinations of focal length / Max aperture are cheap and easy to build into a lens with outstanding performance. I guess this is one of them. Just saying for the naysayers will be dissing this lens. The focal length doesn't really get me excited either but some people may like it

I can live with the add on viewfinder but for goodness sake let me add on a flash at the same time.

On Sony Alpha 7R II: Real-world ISO invariance study article (369 comments in total)

Thank-you Dpreview for this excellent explanation and study. "Invariance" is a new term to me in relation to photography. Can Invariance be measured relatively between camera sensors as a comparison tool for including in your reviews?

On Lens Rentals Canada closes its doors article (178 comments in total)

Low volume due to the low population density in Canada make it impossible for businesses to negotiate shipping rates. As a result, the couple of delivery players in Canada keep prices just below the point where people would start rioting in the streets. Looking at roadmaps of America is interesting because the USA is tightly knitted with roadways, whereas Canada gets more and more sparse towards the northern fringes. We're defiantly at a disadvantage logistically.

EDIT.. unless you're Amazon.ca :D Somehow Amazon was able to undercut my local fitness dealer on a Concept 2 Rower by $350 and shipping was FREE.

On Readers' Showcase: Dale Johnson article (39 comments in total)

Nice interview, and vote of confidence for the D800E. #6 is just outstanding for the composition and the "right there" feeling to it.

Prairie Pal: Shame on Panasonic for not offering a LEFT-HANDED GX8. They clearly don't care about 10% of their customers.

I fail to see ANY imagination and I couldn't skim past the images fast enough. Yeah we've all heard of photoshop, isn't it marvelous what it can do, Gosh-Darn! Slow news day? I mean REALLY? Really dpreview, you were impressed by this? It's all cutting room floor material.

More plastic crap that will end up in the landfills. DP has become an infomercial outlet for Amazon.

Give it a soft stop notch at 28mm on the zoom ring and VR. That would make it irresistible to me.

In reply to:

ThatCamFan: I would of been interested if it had been 24-50. To small zoom for me & I am getting the 18-35 for a D5500 non the less.

Don't think of it as a zoom. Think of it as a wide prime lens for the undecided.
